ABSTRACT
This article reviews research on juvenile bipolar disorderand attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) withparticular reference to differential diagnosis and treatment.Systematic research strongly suggests an atypical courseof very early onset bipolar disorder. Atypicality of suchphenotype may not be rare, but is difficult to diagnose.A main cause of diagnostic confusion is symptomaticoverlap between juvenile bipolar disorder phenotype andattention deficit hyperactivity disorder. A very importantquestion is whether child, adolescent and adult onsetbipolar disorder could be an unrelated disorder, ora different developmental expression of the same disorder.The role of neuropsychological and neuroimaging studiesin differential diagnosis of very early onset bipolar disorderand ADHD is discussed.
